I`m a scripter, so most of my points are from running recipes (mostly mine ofcorz :).
Feel free to comment or put ideas about what script should work.
Want support me? PM for my paypal ;] My old P4 HT need to be finally replaced :P
TYVM all folders supported me :)
My target is about $500 - nothing really top, but over 5x times faster ;]
On today (15-05-11) I have $70 :))
Status on 29-05-2011: $320 :) Thanks to the donor who wishes to remain anonymous :) Getting closer :)
Okay, this is enough for jump start a "base": mobo + memory + processor + chassis. Only lack of some video card will brother me now (my target is cheapest NV GTX 460, rest of stuff I take from my current build). Paypal flushed to normal account, need wait 2-3 days for money transfer. Then I make some shopping :) I hope in about week I can tell that my P4 is history :)
Thanks again to all donors :D
Logged to my bank account and... Yes!
Got another 70E (about $90) form another folder :)
Also my paypal transfer went into real world :)
Balance: $410, I decided to do it NOW. Shopping time! :]

Unpack, hour of screwdriver work and.... gang! My power supply not have proper connector to power up new graphics card! My old one have standard molex, and there we have "special" 6pin connector... Good that mobo has internal GPU so I can runt it anyway. Connect HDD...
Power on.... BSOD. wtf? Reset.... BSOD. Darn! Looks like windowz not like when it is moved on HDD to totally different machine. OK, backup partition, format, win7 DVD... BSOD??? "not acpi compliant"? update BIOS??? this is less than year construction!... grrr.... 2am... ok, XP first then... working. Now run setup 7 under XP... works.... 3am.... ok 4am and Seven boots up properly :) YAWN. Download Foldit... works :) Restore some backups... Wow, 428 looks pretty fast now! (snooze)
10am Another shopping trip to get 500W PSU that have proper connectors. 11am Now put card again... connect to monitor? wtf? NOOOOO!!! It have mini HDMI! ... geez (old one was on normal hdmi connector)... another trip to buy proper cable ;]
